Spend a Day with Daniel Santos, Lead Teacher


A Day in the Life of Daniel Santos, followed on May 9, 2017.

Daniel Santos joined Success Academy in July 2016 as a Teacher Resident and was promoted to a Lead Teacher role within several months. He is currently a second grade teacher in the Bronx.  At 25% of Bronx public schools, not even 1 in 10 students reads, writes, and does math on grade level.  But at Mr. Santos’ school, 92% of scholars have these skills. Success Academy is changing this trajectory for the 14,000 students we serve across New York City.  

Daniel is a graduate of SUNY Binghamton, where he majored in English. Outside of Success, he enjoys hiking, reading, and spending time with his family and friends.
